Once the symptoms of the disease go away, it does not mean that the body is fully recovered. Depending on the severity and duration of the disease, your body's immune system recovery time can range from a few weeks to several months.


Indeed, after falling ill, you may continue to feel abnormal fatigue, a small discomfort under the heart or a limitation in your respiratory amplitude, a persistent chronic cough, headaches or even a disturbance of the menstrual cycle.



Recommendations during convalescence:



  • Eat light: cooked or steamed vegetables, cereals (rice, pasta, quinoa, millet ...)
  • Avoid significant physical efforts, replace sports sessions with nature walks (vitamin D intake), Qi Gong and breathing exercises.
  • Sleep at regular times
  • Stay hydrated, drink plenty of hot water
